We're being joined by a diverse crowd on our lunch date, which is probably only to be expected since we're booked in for an afternoon of fine dining with an extra helping of homicide.
That's the menu on board the Murder Mystery Lunch train, a luxury rail ride around the English countryside that pitches passengers into a cloak and dagger world worthy of Agatha Christie -- but with greater quantities of champagne.
You read that right. As CNN tells it, there is a MURDER MYSTERY TRAIN (a Pullman, no less) that trucks you around the London countryside, involves a five-course, boozy lunch, and casts you into the role of detective. What now?
In no particular order, here are some of my most favorite things in life:
- This English Countryside (Oh, for the love of sheep and hedgerows)
- British Mysteries
- Train Travel (Death by air? NO THANKS, WRIGHT BOYS!)
The only downside, as far as I can tell, is that it's like $800 big ones a pop, which is almost as insane as the fact that THIS EXISTS.
